"Complex, enticing bouquet of white flowers and honeysuckle, gooseberry and fresh herb, peach and a little baked apple add further density and power." Cameron Douglas MS, NZ
Clos Henri is an exciting new vineyard in Marlborough, created by the internationally recognised winemaking family of Henri Bourgeois of Sancerre, France. For ten generations the family has crafted premium quality Sauvignon blanc and Pinot noir wines and in 2000 chose 109 hectares of native Marlborough pastures to continue their passion abroad. They embraced their new found soil with great enthusiasm, eager to begin, and in spite of their huge experience, they worked along local winegrowers, learning about local practices.
Clos Henri are certified organic, work biodynamically and are a part of Marlborough Natural Winegrowers.
This wine would pair beautifully with grilled fish and charred courgette or even on it's own as an aperitif before a meal.
